Keeping the Light of Philanthropy Shining: Puerto Rico Community Foundation Reception

After Hurricane María’s devastating impact on the island, the network of community foundations in the US were the first to mobilize resources. This solidarity action allowed the Puerto Rico Community Foundation (PRCF) to provide immediate relief grants and supplies to community first responders (community based non-profit organizations) and to design a strategic framework to collaborate with Puerto Rico’s sustainable renovation.

In gratitude to the community of foundations who provided support and in an effort to provide accountability of the resources received and the progress of the island, the Puerto Rico Community Foundation welcomes all attendees, especially community foundation colleagues, to join them for this reception. Hear from Javier Soto, President and CEO of the Miami Foundation, and Dr. Nelson I. Colón, President of the Puerto Rico Community Foundation, as they speak to the importance of transnational and cross border giving, as well as the significance of the solidarity network that community foundations have formed to support one another.
